"Perhaps it's bad karma. I think they haven't thought it through properly," McLachlan said. Despite the poor design, he said, the stamps would be in demand by collectors.

"People from all around the world will buy this stamp in big quantities and they will love it."

According to Kapiti philatelist Ian Burtt, all stamps that displayed the royal family had to be approved by Buckingham Palace. "I believe Commonwealth stamps are not always approved and they are sent back with helpful hints as to what will make them more acceptable," Burtt said.


split and they're not even married yet  :laugh: :laugh:

I love how her side is cheaper, and I love how they designed it. Good investment and smart flower placement, when the marriage goes bad, they can still print and use the William side without any indication it was attached to Kate!

It's so odd, like the people around them are preparing a 'just in case' scenario of a split.

Marrying on the day of Hitler's suicide was the start of all the bad ideas.

Marrying on the day of Hitler's suicide was the start of all the bad ideas.

April 29th is the day Hitler married Eva Braun. The couple commited suicide on April 30th.
